A very fitted and flattering dress, with gathers on one side and a cowl neckline that is not too deep to reveal too much or too flappy to get in the way. A perfect pattern. I changed the original pattern by making cap sleeves instead of long sleeves to make this a summer dress, and put a vent in the centre back seam to provide walking room – I walk very fast and don’t want that seam to split!
